The dress standard for teens is exactly the same as for adults unless the cruise line explicitly prescribes a different standard (but I'm not aware of any that do). For the formal evenings, you can wear a "prom dress" or a "bridesmaid's dress" if you have one. If not, a "party dress" that you might wear to a special occasion, such as a wedding or an anniversary party, certainly would be appropriate. Either short, like a cocktail dress, or long, like an evening gown, is fine. Perhaps you can come up with a couple sets of jewelry and accessories to create a different "look" for each "formal" evening.

Have a fantastic cruise!

Norm.

Norm gave you some very good advise. Your formal dress can be long or short, any color you want. It can be simple or fancy depends upon you. I don't know if the stores will have prom dressess in stock in time for your cruise. A great place to find pretty formal dressess is www.bluefly.com. If you have a pretty party, wedding dress that would do you just fine.

Okay, folks, it's quiz time! Let's see who has been paying attention on this board!

Which of the bathing suits in the main photo in your link is the better choice for a Caribbean cruise?

A. The black one on the left.

B. The pink one on the right.

Hint: Consider how much space they will take when you fold them to put them into your suitcase.


Norm.

Well, the one on the right would pack smaller, but I wouldn't be caught dead in either of them ! Don't want to scare the small children (or the "big" children!) !

well. I used ordered clothings on bluefly but I really disappointed with the bad service here. I didn't receide the things on time I ordered. Then I have ordered on fsession.com, and I feel their service is very good, the quality of products are like the informations they posted with the good price.
